Dry scalp the bane of your existence? Not anymore...

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this replenishing hair care duo

The product

When it comes to haircare, there’s nothing that strikes fear in our hearts quite like the mention of ‘dry scalp’. 

Itchiness, flakiness and uncomfortableness are just a few of the key culprits of the perpetual annoyance that is dry scalp. And while we wish there were fast-tracked remedies to instantly rectify the problem, the best line of defence against any kind of dandruff is a solid haircare system.

The answer? Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Shampoo and Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Conditioner. This extra gentle, pH-balanced duo eradicates dandruff and that dreaded itch, soothing that ol’ noggin of yours and replenishing dry strands thanks to a coconut oil-infused formula. 

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this pair of scalp soothers.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Shampoo and Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Conditioner to a panel of women aged 18 to 64 experiencing scalp dryness, itchiness and flakiness.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Shampoo and Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Conditioner.

The improvement to scalp health: Our members with persistent scalp issues such as dandruff, flakiness, dryness and irritation were pleasantly surprised that their symptoms were soothed soon after introducing the shampoo and conditioner to their routine.

The affordable price point: Reviewers were stoked that they were able to snag a new set of the haircare duo on their supermarket shop thanks to an uber affordable price. 

The smoothing effect it had on strands: Members kept commenting on how much they loved the inclusion of coconut oil in the formula, meaning less frizz and smooth, soft strands post-wash.

The verdict

“[Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Shampoo] is light, smells lovely and is rich but not heavy. I have fine hair with dry ends and depending on the weather I get dry scalp. It is a rich, luscious shampoo, and lathers well, a little goes a long way. It felt like it did a deep clean of both the scalp and the hair, and felt super clean but not dry. I would recommend this product to anyone that needs a good shampoo at an affordable price.”

“My scalp is typically quite dry, itchy and gets the occasional dandruff. I used [Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Shampoo] together with the matching conditioner 2-3 times per week and I noticed a general reduction in the amount of flakiness from my scalp. In the shower, I lather up the shampoo and leave it on my scalp for a few minutes before rinsing off. My scalp feels clearer, cleaner and more fresh after using the shampoo. Additionally, between washes my scalp did not get as oily as it typically would.”

“The [Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Conditioner] exceeded my expectations, obviously it's marketed as an itchy scalp/dandruff product but I don't always get relief when I buy these products. This one however did ease my itchy scalp and helped prevent a persistent dry patch that I get. I have curly/frizzy hair, the coconut oil was added in the formula to hydrate the scalp but I also found it nourished my curls so I was pleasantly surprised with that additional pro.”

“My scalp is super itchy and has dandruff. I've used so many products and I'm still struggling with it. After using [Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Conditioner] on my hair every other day with the anti dandruff shampoo I can say the flakiness have reduced quite a bit and this didn't make my hair all dry and damaged like some of the other anti dandruff shampoos do. It moisturised my scalp and hair very well and I love how my hair smelled afterwards. It's very affordable and it does the job.”
